    Would love to get my boys into a bunch of bluegill. We will be over in the Moses lake area this coming weekend. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated have a drift boat but no motor and canoes.

    According to the state stocking schedule for Grant county they put trout in a little creek that's for juveniles only. It's called Hatchery Creek. I think it's near the hatchery :rolleyes:.
    There's also a very popular spring perch fishery in the area. Both would be good options if the gill bite is off.

    head into the seeps to hutchinson/shiner. Plenty of gill's in there, and crappie too. Bring the drift boat, i seem to remember a decent launch there.
